CrossReach Coronavirus (COVID-19) Emergency Appeal
The rapidly changing situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all of us, and together, we are all facing challenging times.
We urgently need your help today to continue providing our vital care services to some of the most vulnerable individuals in Scotland during this unprecedented healthcare emergency as follows:
- We are providing residential care and other services for the elderly, who are particularly vulnerable just now. To protect them we need to be especially careful that any staff with the slightest hint of COVID-19 symptoms immediately self-isolate. This places huge pressure on the rest of the staff and can involve employing agency workers to provide essential care. This all comes at an additional cost and places more strain on already stretched budgets.
- Most of our services for Children and Families have closed as a result of COVID-19. This is a huge disappointment to the many children and families who rely on their time with us each week. To help the children who would normally use our services, our staff teams have been developing materials to still help the children while at home. With the extra materials come extra costs.
- Many of our services for adults in vulnerable situations operate as drop-ins and have also closed. Staff are seeking new ways to help support the people they care for, including those with mobility issues but this too involves additional cost.
Please consider helping CrossReach to provide all of these vital services by making a donation today. We will use your donation where there is the greatest immediate need. Please consider making a single gift or a regular monthly donation to help us in this time of extraordinary need. Ideally please donate online here Donate
Please also pray for the health and well-being of those we work with, the CrossReach staff team and all our wonderful supporters.
Thank You for supporting us.
